Time to Grill!
My family seems to be like a normal, typical midwest American family. We all love different types of grilled food items such as pork chops, chicken, ribs, and salmon. We also enjoy grilling veggies such as asparagus, butternut squash, and potatoes.
Don’t forget about dessert!
But wait… don’t forget about dessert! Once in a while my son, Isaac, makes a Bourbon Cherry Bread Pudding on his Green Egg. Talk about delicious!!!
The first secret to his recipe starts by purchasing a pound of 85% lean ground chuck. Ground chuck is great for making juicy burgers, mouth-watering meatloaf, Maid-Rites, and chili. Fresh ground chuck works best when making these delicious burgers. When I notice that there is a sale on ground chuck I’ll purchase several pounds, divide it into packages and freeze it for later use.
The second secret is to add wonderful Riley’s Salt-Free All Purpose Seasoning and Worcestershire Sauce to the ground chuck. It’s important to mix the seasonings and Worcestershire sauce well into the meat. You can allow the mixture to marinate overnight in the refrigerator if you’d like (this allows the flavors to blend together more), or you can go ahead and prepare the patties and grill them immediately.
Riley’s Salt-Free All Purpose Seasoning
*I personally called the company and spoke with the owner, David Riley. He told me that this product is gluten-free, contains no fillers or anti-caking agents, sugars, or potassium chloride and that they use the highest quality ingredients to make their products. He also stated that many doctors suggest to their patients who are on a low-sodium or diabetic diet that they use this product for their seasoning needs. Be sure to check out more of their products here.

Gluten-Free Worcestershire Sauce
The third secret in making the best hamburgers is to allow the meat to reach room temperature before throwing the burgers on the grill and preheat your grill to approximately 400 degrees F.
Grill the burgers for approximately 15 to 20 minutes, flipping them once.
Here are the ratios:
- 1 lb Ground Chuck
- 1/8 cup Worcestershire sauce (*GF version: use gluten-free Worcestershire)
- 1 tsp Riley’s salt-free all-purpose seasoning
- (*GF version: use gluten-free hamburger buns, such as Udi’s brand)
Create a condiment station with a variety of toppings such as:
- sliced tomatoes
- sliced onions
- BBQ sauce
- garlic mayonnaise
- sliced cucumbers
- broccoli sprouts
- sliced cheeses
